    Default restore and jaikbreakme
    i have an imac and an iPhone 4 right now it is on version 4.0.1 and it is jailbroken with jailbreakme and i really need to restore my phone because i lost all my music in iTunes somehow and I had to transfer the music back to itunes from my iPhone and when i finally got thru and as I was about to sync it again itunes tell me that it does not recognize my phone and i need to restore it and that the latest version (4.0.2) will be installed on it. so my ? is "is there anyway that I can restore and put my music and all my apps back on and keep it jailbroken and with version 4.0.1...I know I may need to jailbreak it again but how do I restore with version 4.0.1 back on instead of 4.0.2

    as long as you have your shsh's for 4.0.1 (not sure if apple is still signing it) you can use this method...it is for 3.1.2 but the process is the same for 4.x. Restore iPhone 3GS to 3.1.2 Using SHSHs on File with Cydia | OS X

    an shsh is a verification file that iTunes requests from apple to allow a restore to a particular firmware, by saving them it gives you the ability to trick iTunes into thinking that apple replied with an "okay" to restore to a firmware that apple is no longer signing, use tinyumbrella to save your shsh (at this point the only one you can get is 4.0.1 if apple is still signing 4.0.1)
